Easy Oven Baked Chili Lime Salmon

Can you believe up until a few months ago, I would have never dreamed of eating and actually enjoying salmon? I had eaten it a few times growing up but never cared for it at all. Something about the taste and texture really worked on my gag reflex–yuck.

My husband finally convinced me to try salmon again, and that maybe cooking it differently than I’d had it in the past would make me like it.

I’m only admitting this here because he doesn’t read anything I write–but he was right. Maybe it’s because I’m an adult, and adults should be eating healthier things, or maybe it’s because I really actually like the flavor and flakiness of this chili lime salmon.  Either way, it’s delicious AND it’s easy to make. Winner winner chicken dinner. Or salmon dinner.
